Obsession - Kat Shehata (Russian Tattoos #1)

 Published Date: January 12, 2016
Genre: Romance
Synopsis: Falling in love isn’t a crime—but falling in love with a Russian mafia boss could be deadly.

Competitive tennis player Carter Cook wants a taste of freedom. Her overprotective father monitors every aspect of her life, so when he becomes employed by Vladimir Ivanov—a sexy Russian with an array of tattoos and an accent that weakens her knees—a bit of danger is within Carter’s grasp. Behind her father's back, she enjoys spending time with Vladimir at his lavish estate. But is he really the upstanding businessman she believes him to be?

Vladimir Ivanov reigns as godfather of a Russian mafia crime ring.

Vladimir spent five years of his life in a Siberian prison camp and has earned every tattoo inked into his skin. He is a powerful man who gets what he wants, and after stalking the gorgeous tennis player for years—he wants Carter. A little charm melts her heart, and behind the scenes, he orders his henchman to track her every move.

He’s a tattooed stick of dynamite ready to blow at the slightest spark.

As their romance reaches deadly levels, Carter senses something’s not right. When she’s lured into a compromising position at the hands of a shady European drug dealer, she calls in Boris, Vladimir’s right hand man, to rescue her—without telling Vladimir. With his authority questioned, he sets out to teach Carter a lesson about loyalty she’ll never forget.

When Carter realizes she's in too deep, she must fight for her freedom before the attraction turns fatal.

But the Russian bratva plays for keeps, and Vladimir’s fierce lust to possess her spirals their romance out of control.

Carter Cook is definitely one of the most oppressed characters that I have definitely read. She suffers the guilt of everything. Literally, it feels like the weight of her world is on her shoulders.

This book took me a while to read but to be fair, there were plenty of chapters to go through and eat up. I absolutely loved the fact that Carter was fighting until her last breath. Spoiler? I think not.

This was the first time that I read Kat Shehata but I can guarantee that it won't be the last. Throughout this book, I felt as if though I was Carter. I felt everything that she felt, I saw everything that she saw, and heard everything that she heard. That is how vivid Kat Shehata brings a love story to a messed-up Russian mob romance.

Beautifully crafted, I wanted to be inside the story. Experiencing not only the love of family and friends of Carter but also from Vladimir. The dangerous man that should be feared and loved all in one.

4 out of 5 stars is what I would give Russian Tattoos.

Blog you later, awesome book nerds.
